Degree Audit Reports
DARS is an acronym for the Degree Audit Reporting System. DARS analyzes degree requirements for a major, minor, or certificate according to the catalog year in which you entered the program. DARS reports are the printed results of the analysis. The DARS report displays the courses from which you must select in order to complete degree requirements, and it shows how the completed courses apply toward those requirements. The DARS report provides a "snapshot" of where you stand relative to graduation. NOTE: Requirements are not analyzed by DARS for some graduate programs and osteopathic medicine.
Although the DARS report provides a comprehensive description of program requirements, it is intended to supplement the role of the faculty advisor.
You may view your DARS report by clicking here. You will be prompted to enter your student Oak ID and password. If you are unable to log in to the DARS Web application, please contact the service desk at (740) 593-1222 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Online help is available at https://www.ohio.edu/oit/help/.
If you feel that DARS is not correctly analyzing certain requirements, you should consult an advisor from the student services office of your college or regional campus student services office.
